Jack White 'Really, Really' Misses The White Stripes

Jack White misses the white stripes

Jack White has made it clear that The White Stripes are donzo, but he wants everyone to know that it's not his fault!

In a recent New York Times Magazine profile, the singer revealed that it was actually his ex-wife and drummer, Meg White, that wanted to end the band for good, explaining:

"Some people can live their whole lives in limbo. I'd rather cut the lifeline so we can move on with our lives. There came a point where I said, 'If we're not doing this, we need to put an end to it right now.' And that's what she wanted to do."

The rock band officially ended their musical union with an announcement in February 2011 and, as it turns out, he may miss it more than his fans! If he could, Jack would pick up a guitar and record a White Stripes song "right now," saying:

"I'd make a White Stripes record right now. I'd be in the White Stripes for the rest of my life. That band is the most challenging, important, fulfilling thing ever to happen to me. I wish it was still here. It's something I really, really miss."

He hasn't given up on music, however. Listeners can hear Jack shred on his first solo album Blunderbuss, which will be available on April 24.

Do U miss the White Stripes as much as Jack does?

    Eh, it'll be a few years but one day they'll make another album I'm willing to bet on it lol. It's kind of difficult to work with your ex…Takes alot of getting over things for that to be a viable option for 99% of people.

    I miss them too! White Stripes were the greatest! I enjoy Jack's solo stuff though. He's an excellent guitarist.

    Well then why don't they record a new album by remote, and tour only minimally or not at all. Band in absentia. Could get creative.

    mr. white. the man is a genius… a musical mad scientist… a mastermind. everything he touches becomes wanted. his music is always incredible, his ideas are always epic, and his passion for being an outcast.. always standing out in a world that constantly tries to fit in. i admire him so much.
